Boss 302 wheels opinion

What do you guys think of the Boss 302 wheels? Ugly? Nice? I am still looking to purchase some 19 inch staggered wheels and have narrowed my choices to the boss 302, gt 500 black machined wheels offered by american muscle and the SVE silver drift wheels from late model restoration. Any opinions? Thanks

GT500's look great and the Drifts are badass!

I still like the Drifts but I must admit the machined GT500s would look amazing on a black car. I assume you are looking at the 2011 style GT500s.

Drifts are RTR knock offs from latemodel.

Yeah the drifts are identical to the RTRs. I have read that some of the cheaper aftermarket cause shimmy problems. I guess thats why is taking me so long to purchase wheels. I truly love the oem gt 500s but the 19 inch are super expensive and not sure how 18 s would look on my 2011.

Re: Boss 302 wheels opinion

you could consider more custom wheels like vossen, ccw or trueforged if you want to spend a bit more~ they are more unique though etc

May look at those brands. I guess I have been focusing on sales sites for mustangs. I want my wheels to fit nice with tires tucked in the fenders. Go as wide as possible but tires tucked in. I figured the wheels designed for mustangs will give me the best stance.

Anything OEM will be ridiculous.. Replicas are the way to go unless your just loaded w money to blow.. Most replicas are pretty damn cheap too..

Yeah I hear you guys! The problem is that I cant decide on the size of the wheels. I like 19s but they are mote expensive and tires are insane. Someone recommended I go to a 20 but mustangs and 20 inch really dont mesh in my opinion. 18s may be too small.

I really think the 19s are the perfect size for these cars.. 20s don't look bad and I think your right 18s are too small.. Just replaced two of my tires on my brembo 19s.. $200 a piece was the CHEAPEST I could find.. And I get tires at cost..

Yeah bud those 19s are high and selection sucks. They do look the best I agree. 20s are tempting for sure but it may affect performance
